From Adagio Teas

Fine twisted young leaf that resembles a chun mee style but interspersed with silvery down covered buds. The aroma is quietly floral but gives way to a smokiness, reminiscent of a gunpowder but not nearly as bold. The cup is light, yet smoky with a semi buttery mouthfeel. In the finish a dry white grape note, and lingering smoke.

Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.

My first GOD (glass of the day) was Adagio Silver Sprout, to accompany my first MOD (meal of the day), couscous with honey.

The tea brewed up pale yellow veering peach, so I must have used fewer leaves this time. The water was cool, so that did not affect the final brew. I found this cup rather clean and only slightly vegetal. I did not even notice the smokiness in this glass, so next time if I’m craving a smoky green, I’ll double the leaves or perhaps increase the steep time—or perhaps both.

second infusion: better than the first!

I didn’t taste much flavor in this one. Very light tasting.
